When it comes to doing a custom dog collar, there are a lot of different ways to go about it. The options can be vast so it’s important to grow your understanding regarding the options and ways that you can choose to do a custom dog collar.
Today in Besty Dog Collars, we wanted to take a better look deeper into the whole custom dog collar scene and find out some of the different ways one may choose to do a custom one. Dog owners are always thriving with personality and always aiming to represent themselves through the accessories that they give their fur babies.
When many of us were debating on how to design or go about making a custom dog collar, there are a lot of different options which presented itself before us. Here are some of them:
Changing the Color
The color of the collar is, of course, the most basic sort of change that you can do. You can opt to dye it in a hue that isn’t normally associated with dog collars in the general market. You can even make it match a color that fits that sort of level your dog’s discipline is at.
Of course, just because you can change the color does not mean that you should not put a lot of thought into the hue. You need to consider the colors that your dog sees and—by consequence—the colors that other dogs see. If the color that you picked is disruptive, your dog may suffer the wrong kind of attention from other dogs. We suggest that you consult your pet’s vet to determine if there are any kind of hue which should be avoided altogether.
Changing the Material
The material of the collar is something that will greatly affect the finished product. It shall also determine how comfortable your pet is going to be with the collar that you’ve made. When making the collar, you need to think about:
- What breed your dog is
- What size your dog is
- What its lifestyle is
- What are its particular needs
When you consider all of that, you can really choose a material that can really help elevate the living conditions of your pet. After all, no one likes an uncomfortable thing around their neck. If you wouldn’t like one, your dog won’t either.
Choosing the Design
The design of the collar is another way that you can go about changing the custom collar that you’re making. You can add decals to it, add some nice charms (much like a charm bracelet), or you can even add your personal art to the collar.
It’s entirely up to you as the owner. You can make it as simple or as bombastic as you choose it to be. What’s important is that you are happy with the final result. Just make sure that the design does not compromise the integrity of the collar. Your dog will try to see if they can scuff up the thing around their neck first before they get used to it.
So there you have it! Three different ways you can do a custom collar. What are your thoughts about the ways of going about making a custom dog collar? Have you tried your hand at it? We would love to hear what you say about it in the comments!
